In Courage aims to celebrate diversity, champion local partnerships and highlight personal stories that touch upon the dangers of extremism and the manipulation of youth. We will also be awarding commission opportunities for artists to create original work inspired the presentations.

Every Thursday in March, Applecart Arts will present a matinee at 1.30pm for local schools; with an evening repeat at 7.30pm for community groups and interested parties.

8th March  Dangerous ideas - extremism in modern society – Speaker:  Manwar Ali

Manwar Ali is one of the few scholars in the UK who has been directly involved in conflict zones alongside extremist organisations. He now uses this experience in his work with the UK's Home Office and Crown Prosecution Service.  He founded the charity JIMAS and has helped make British Islam relevant and important to life now. Manwar will speak about his radical past to discourage young people from pursuing a similar path.

Each event will also showcase a short play, an artistic performance, a Q&A session with the speaker and an interactive workshop.

The event will last approximately 90 minutes.

Tickets are free but you are required to book.
